F.A.Q.

Q
WHAT IS MDF ?
A
MDF is medium-density fiberboard. It has become the most popular composite material in recent years.Because MDF is uniform, very dense, smooth and free of knots and grain patterns, it makes an excellent substitute for solid wood in many applications. It is an excellent base for solid color and woodgrain RTF veneers and laminates. It is also the perfect choice for painting because there is no woodgrain showing through. Kitchen doors of MDF, as opposed to natural wood, have no joints to crack after they have been painted.

MDF is made up of wood particles and resin. The particles are separated uniformly to make a fine, consistent material that is cooked and pressure steamed. The material is then bound with an adhesive and heat pressed to produce a solid board with many of the same qualities of natural wood, but without many of natural wood’s limitations.

Because of MDF’s consistent makeup, machining this material with the right tools results in clean, sharp edges without chip-out or fuzzing. Because MDF is more dense than most woods, manufacturers use only the highest quality tools of carbide and diamond for cutting.

Because MDF is denser than most woods, manufacturers use only the highest quality tools of carbide and diamond for cutting. As opposed to those made of natural wood, kitchen doors made of MDF have no joints to crack after they have been painted. In addition, MDF doors come out as one solid piece, whereas traditional wood doors are 5 pieces that tend to warp over time, making them substandard for painting. MDF doors are usually used for painted light-coloured kitchens. They are highly durable and provide a clean look with a smooth finish.
